Cloudyn SaaS Solution


Cloudyn has announced the general availability of their Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution for dynamically optimizing the costs of cloud computing resources.

Cloudyn’s solution provides cost visibility, control, and optimization for cloud customers, and, according to the announcement, Cloudyn does more than just provide customers with insight into cloud usage and spending: It also provides personalized next steps for administrators. According to the company, the software provides maximum savings without affecting operational efficiency or taking control away from the customer.

Cloudyn’s automated SaaS solution does not reconfigure or redeploy cloud resources; it requires no software installation and needs only minimal access privileges. Cloudyn provides customers with personalized and customized recommendations for their cloud investments through proprietary algorithms and event-driven engines. Cloudyn currently supports Amazon Web Services (AWS) compute and database services and is developing integration with other cloud environments.

Cloudyn’s full product offering will be provided free of charge to early adopters until May 1, 2012. After May 1, Cloudyn will charge a basic monthly fee for cost-saving recommendations, based on the customer’s overall monthly cloud expenditures. Visibility and control will remain free of charge.

    Cloud computing provides a variety of benefits including flexibility and control. However, in the case of infrastructure as a service, practically all public cloud service providers offer only a relatively small number of pre-configured virtual machine images. This is somewhat analogous to offering shoes without half-sizes or widths, and then – when the fit isn’t quite right – asking the customer to try on a brand or style that is sized a bit differently. The customer may end up with the right size, or the right brand, or the right style – but not all three. In the case of IaaS, this means settling for a server which does not fit the needs of an application in terms of CPU, memory or storage.

    SoftLayer has recently updated its renowned CloudLayer service with a Build Your Own Cloud capability. This new approach allows customers to configure the amount of CPU, memory and storage used by their cloud servers. With this enhanced capability, SoftLayer customers avoid the tradeoffs forced by other IaaS offerings. These tradeoffs typically include over provisioning, which leads to inefficient resource utilization and higher cost, or under provisioning, which leads to lower levels of performance and scalability. Rather than constraining the dimensions of your server, CloudLayer lets you customize your server to meet the specific needs of your application. After all, who knows your application best – you or your IaaS provider? Neovise believes that any organization wishing to run production applications in a public cloud needs to strongly consider SoftLayer.
